About Adoption Service Providers

Each year the United States welcomes more children into homes through intercountry adoption than any other nation in the world. Since 1999, Americans have adopted over 250,000 children from abroad. This could not have been possible without the dedication of so many adoption service providers to finding loving homes for children.

Throughout our site, you will find varied information that touches upon many different aspects of the intercountry adoption process. As the U.S. Central Authority for the Hague Adoption Convention, consider us your first stop for questions about the Convention, accreditation, and its impact on the adoption process.

We appreciate the commitment that you have to assisting children and prospective adoptive parents. We are here to help.
